Nine years of dedication to the cause: Laurentian Bank and its employees
pleased to be participating again in the Media's Big Food Drive
MONTREAL, Dec. 6, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - It is with great pleasure that
Laurentian Bank is renewing its association for a ninth consecutive year as a
Friend of the Media's Big Food Drive.
From November 26 through December 24, the Bank's 157 branches will serve as
collection points for non-perishable food items and cash donations. During
this period, a host of employees will be involved in the cause by looking
after the in-branch collection of donations, by counting the money raised on
December 6, as well as by collecting donations in the street that same day.
"Our participation in the Media's Big Food Drive is important for all
employees," underlines Stéphane Gagnon, Sales and Advising Manager senior
vice-president, Marketing and Product Management at Laurentian Bank. "In fact,
our entire organization is mobilizing its efforts, with hundreds of employees
rolling up their sleeves to help bring some happiness to the lives of needy
families. I invite the public to come visit us in our branches and to give
generously in aid of the disadvantaged."
Once again this year, some Bank branches will be serving as official counting
stations on December 6. As such, we are pleased to be working in partnership
with Garda, which will be offering its generous support with this activity.
